Exploring Patient Involvement in Decision Making for Vascular ProceduresJournal of Vascular Surgery
Document TypeConference Proceeding
AbstractDeveloping patient-centered approaches to health care requires increased engagement of patients in their own care, including treatment decisions. Current levels of patient involvement in treatment choices have not been quantified, however, and whether patients desire greater decision-making responsibility is unknown. We conducted a prospective study to explore patients' desired vs experienced roles in treatment decisions, characterize perceptions of treatment outcomes, and identify important sources of information.
